We planned to have a louvre window above the shower to let out the steam so as to avoid the need for an electric fan. But I've learnt that with modern louvres in Australia, the clips that hold the blades are made of polypropylene, which melts at 130-171 degrees, and that the old ones made of aluminium don't comply with AS 2047, as they don't seal well enough against water coming in. We could have a bushfire shutter (I don't understand how they work), or we could substitute a casement window (which wouldn't do the job as well as a louvre, and would necessitate the flyscreen being on the inside). Any thoughts on solving this dilemma would be appreciated.
